When Pinterest Melts Your Brain
So, I got it into my head that I needed a candlescape ( . . .Pinterest is a dark and lonely place, friends) but I wanted to make it using stuff I already had. So I used empty caviar jars, black sea salt jars, a candle stand I already had and some alpaca yarn I made that got super tangled. Then I decided to work on the birdcage I have in my living room, I decided to nix the old curtains and hang a voile curtain and then I painted wooden Ikea frames and found pics of all our close friends at parties at our house and hung those. Then I had a party. Then I threw up a lot. And now I’m sick. A short story by Deborah Castellano.
